Press Release (ePRNews.com) - BERLIN, Germany - Apr 12, 2016 - ScienceOpen and Higher Education Press are pleased to announce a new partnership at the 2016 London Book fair to foster open research and publishing collaborations between China and Europe. The innovative ScienceOpen (http://www.scienceopen.com/) discovery platform can increase visibility for scholarly publishers.
For this pilot project, Higher Education Press will be indexing one of their flagship Open Access journals, Frontiers of Agricultural Science and Engineering (https://www.scienceopen.com/search?10&f=journal_filter$@%7CFrontiers+of+Agricultural+Science+and+Engineering) (FASE), with ScienceOpen, adding to the current archive of over 11 million article records.
FASE is a leading Open Access journal in the fields of Agricultural Engineering, Resources and Biotechnology, Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Medicine, Applied Ecology, Crop Science, Forestry Engineering and Fisheries, Horticulture, and Plant Protection.
By indexing FASE with ScienceOpen, Higher Education Press demonstrate that they are spearheading the advance of scholarly communication in China, and fostering best practices in Open Science.
A new Collection (https://www.scienceopen.com/collection/HEP_FASE?6) has been built for FASE to encourage open peer review and discussion around research articles. Articles can be shared, commented on, rated, recommended, and formally peer reviewed as part of ScienceOpen’s open networking platform.
CEO of ScienceOpen Stephanie Dawson said “Open Access is a growing force in China, and we are happy to work with one of the leading publishers, Higher Education Press, to help increase the visibility of Chinese Open Access globally. We are pleased to use Frontiers of Agricultural Science and Engineering to launch this new partnership, as it publishes excellent research in a field addressing pressing issues such as food security in a changing world.”
This partnership recognizes the global commitment of ScienceOpen and Higher Education Press to enhance the visibility and impact of scholarly research in Engineering Science fields.
